This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Toronto Film Shooters Meetup. Our co-founder Alex started the initiative, who noticed a post on the old APUG Toronto subforum wanting more film photography-centered meetups in the GTA. Having co-hosted an APUG/FPP meetup in May 2011, attended another APUG event later in the month. And also having attended Photostock in 2012 along with a 2013 APUG events in North-East Ohio. He felt ready to start organizing a large-scale regional event four times a year. So in July 2013, the very first TFS event took place at Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works. And while the group has grown and changed and even survived a global pandemic, it is still a driving force within the film photography community through the GTA and beyond! You can check out Alex’s photos from the event on Flickr. Looking to join a future walk, or just like the idea of the TFS, you can join our group on Facebook! Or make sure to check out Toronto Analog Friends over on Instagram and join their Discord for meetup details.
